4 days post op

Things have pretty much stayed the same. The swelling hasn't gone down anymore. The bruising started to show this morning but so far it's just on my face and hasn't traveled down my neck. I think the most annoying things are nosebleeds and being congested (and the fact that it takes forever to make, blend, and strain a meal!). My meds were really hard to get down but I think I have perfected the art of watering them down so I can swallow. The throat feels pretty tight so swallowing has been a chore.

The saddest thing about this picture is that I actually thought it looked like a smile!

Aww.. well it is a smile, and those who have been through it will recognise it as such! ;-)

You're swelling is less than mine - I'm jealous! :0) You're looking great, really! How's your energy level? Hopefully, each day it's getting a little better.

I bought some Cream of Wheat this morning to try your next recipe.

Did you pick-up a heating pad yesterday? I used it again last night, and it does seem to work. I'm going to give it a few more days before posting more pictures. I want this swelling to go away!
